    All of the installed titles, for all different consoles (Wii u, GC, N64,etc.), work with no problems. The only console I have a problem with is Wii it does not matter if I try to run a title from the Wii u side, or if I try to play a Wii game through wiiflow on the vWii side (still have no problems with other consoles on the vWii side either). Everytime I try to open a Wii game, the system resets.
    I need help, please.

    I actually just did that. I reinstalled 249,250, and 251 with beers 53-vwii-alt. I have also tried beta52. It did not help

    The Wii games used to work, but not anymore. I don't know why. They are on two different devices. The installed titles are on a .wbfs HDD and I play wiiflow through my at32 SD card.

    My HDD is wbfs format. I had to install the titles through wup installer. That's not connected though because I have Wii u games installed on there, which work, and i even tried to move some of the wii games to internal memory and that was not the problem.
    I am using at cable for my HDD.

    Your HD must be FAT32 to work, also you are playing on wiiflow or wii eshop games(installed by wup installer).

    and what type of error you get after try open a wii game?

    Use fat32 for your Wii hard drive and convert your games to .wbfs files. You don't need to have your hard drive formatted as WBFS. That's a really old outdated method that has no support.

    I got it working. I just switched the bases for 249 and 250. I found a thread where someone was having the same issue as I was. I can play Wii games off the drive and the SD card. Of course, knowing my luck, I bet the GameCube games won't work though. I'll look into it later.

    Question about the conversations, if I do convert the drive and the files, will I still have channels for the games? I've considered doing the conversion, but I kind of like having channels.

    yes, you will. I'm using a fat32 drive with wbfs files. playing a game right now in fact. and, all r channels in usb loader gx. no issues. however, I have heard of the issue u described where a different cios worked. I suggested that to someone on here. I'm not sure which backup loader you're using, but it may have options for nintendont. you shouldn't have to change anything under normal conditions.

    I
    Didn't mess with 58 so I should have no problems with nintendont. I'm using wiiflow, but only because I couldn't get CFG loader work past the splash screen. However, now that my Wii u can read Wii games again, I might try it out.

    Also, on the drive that I have which is formatted in wbfs, all of the games that I have installed are channels on the Wii u screen. I don't even have to change to vWii, or open a loader, for those games. I like it like that, it's simple.

    Do any of y'all know a good way to create WADs on the vWii side that go straight to the game? I have looked in to it, breifly. That's the only thing left that I want to do to the Wii u. Well, besides getting wiimc working online, but that shouldn't be hard.

    Use Crap to make WADs of your games, you just need change some settings to works to vWii, i already seen a thread on forums about Crap working on vWii

    Wait, how do you make shortcuts for them on the Wii U menu?
    GC games certainly won't work, they only work on FAT32 drives. You can instantly convert the WBFS drive to FAT32 with wbfs2fat: https://gbatemp.net/threads/wbfs2fat-py.291320/
